PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): Think about it. Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the "Miracle on Ice," right? And we celebrated the U.S. victory there. The Democrats just nominated a guy who it's not clear who he was cheering for in 1980. It's not clear! Was he pulling for the Russians or the Americans? We don't know!


LISA BOOTHE (GUEST CO-HOST): There was even an article in The Washington Post, I think it was last year, talking about how, you know, capitalism is in crisis and essentially billionaires are to blame. Do not think for a second if Bernie Sanders ends up the nominee, which he likely will, that you're going to have the media is trumpeting this. They're going to say, "Capitalism is bad. He is not really a socialist, he's a democratic-socialist," Pete.

HEGSETH: Yeah, yeah.

BOOTHE: "There's not really that much to fear. This isn't going to be Venezuela."
